Thank you for signing our pledge to vote for the candidate who will work to end poverty in BC, starting with raising social assistance levels above the poverty line.
BC has one of Canada’s highest poverty rates and social assistance rates haven’t been raised in a decade. Taking action on poverty by improving public services and increasing social assistance would actually save us $5-6 billion per year. Poverty is a political choice. We need to speak out and let the government know that we’re voting for immediate action on poverty.
The more people that join the campaign, the stronger our impact will be. Please help spread the word by sharing this campaign on Twitter and Facebook. We also have a message (below) that you can personalize and send to your friends and family.Edit in email or copy/paste the text below:
